His father, Laxman Negi, bravely decided to donate one of his kidneys to his son. Mr. Negi conveyed a positive message to society, emphasizing that if a family member is suffering from any renal disease and transplantation is the only option, then another family member should step forward for kidney donation. He highlighted that a person could lead a normal life with just one kidney.
